Mickey , nnd tbo petition for n pardon baa boon algnod already by n majority of the Jury who convicted the boy. It Is thought by the persona working for the prisoner thnt every Juryman will gladly algn the petition. Clark wna n young mnn working nt the South Norfolk cntlng house nnd the crime for which ho wns sent up was n statutory offense preferred by the parents of little Flossie Richardson - son nt South Norfolk.

OMAHA FIRM GETS CONTRACT The Service Will Consist of Twenty- Three Pieces and Will be Appro priate and Handsome Description of the Set. Lincoln Journal : Governor Mickey catordny nwnrded the contract for n 3,000 allvor service for the battleship obrnflkn to the firm of Rolchonborg & Smith of Omnhn , whoso original do- ilgn best pleased him. The governor ocontly obtained considerable news paper notoriety on account of his ro- uaal to vote for the appointment of n Into employe on the ground that the mnn IB Bnld to awcnr nnd drink. Notwithstanding - withstanding the governor's well known position , ho selected n service hnt contains n punch bowl nnd cups 'or drinking purposes. The legislature onnctcd n Inw appropriating $3,000 for 'tho purchase of a Bllver service for ho UBO of the office , crow and ma rines of the battleship Nebraska , " the money to bo expanded under the dlroc- Ion of the governor. The appropriation simply calls fora silver service , and while It would bo BBlblo for the governor to buy a aor- vlco for the use of water Instead of punch , a silver norvlco Is generally supposed to moan the UBO of punch , so niich Borvlco will bo bought. Four firms , throe In Omnhn nnd ono n Han Frnnclso , submitted designs , each of the full vnluo of the approprla tlon , but that of the successful bidder appeared moro suitable. The allvorls' I o ho hnnd engraved with designs em- Dlomatlcal of Nebraska. The principal plcco Is a center piece three foot long. Next In Bl/.o nnd Importance Is the punch bowl , platter , a ladle and eigh teen flinall cups , a largo loving cup. In all there are twonty-throo pieces. An engraving of the battloahlp Ne braska will bo conspicuous on the punch bowl and the centerpiece. The seal of the state Is among the larger ileslgns. In addition there Is to bo old time pictures of the Union Pacific brldgn surmounted by n buffalo head. A picture of the state house will bo engraved on the center piece , together with other designs. Among the small er figures will bo bonds of buffalo , an telope nnd coyote , nnd corn nnd smnll grain. The service will bo finished by the time the battleship Is completed. Although the legislature expressed n desire to hnvo the service for the use of the crow and mnrlnos , ns well as the juicers , It Is not thought that the crow will have much opportunity to ndmlro or use the silver. At onetime time nn effort wns made to have the legislature appropriate money for u library for the Bhlp. The Daughters of tbo American Revolution of Nebraska have nlrendy donated a regulation silk ting for the ship. An onthusinstlc effort wns made last fnll to secure subscriptions from the people of the stnto to buy a silver service , but Governor Mickey did not cnll for donations and the movement failed for lack of support.
